Slipknot's Corey Taylor will be honored at the Rock To Recovery 2 benefit concert on September 16 at Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles.
Founded by Korn guitarist Wesley Geer, Rock To Recovery was created to help soothe the restless souls of those in recovery. They do this by creating a “band” and writing and recording songs together with Rock to Recovery’s staff of professional musicians, who are also in recovery. They help bring fun into treatment and recovery by offering a natural escape from the fear-based mind. This helps people grow a sense of belonging and self esteem. They help to vent emotions by writing lyrics and singing together for release, in real-time. They tie in a positive theme of hope in recovery throughout the whole process. When the session is done, “band” members feel a new energy all throughout their minds and spirits.
Rock to Recovery gives people, such as recovering addicts/alcoholics, victims of abuse, troubled teens, or any individual in recovery, a chance to have fun expressing themselves, working as a group, and experiencing the natural high only music can produce.
Also being honoured at the event will be MC5’s Wayne Kramer, and the evening will also feature a performance by Kings Of Chaos, featuring Matt Sorum.
